Title. I know I should play 4 beats/tick but there are an odd number of notes. How do I time it.
try fitting the whole scale into two ticks (2/4 time) or four ticks (4/4 time)
I like to set the metronome at half the speed I'm playing so the clicks are on beats 2 and 4 so I can lock into a drummer's snare. Then I just solo over the clicks and try to stay in time. If its a new scale then I might not do the 2 clicks till I get it down pat.
